BROOKLYN, NY - Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, Inc. (KDA) has arranged a 35,000 square-foot lease for Cirker’s Brooklyn, LLC, an art storage and moving company, in the former Winchester Fine Arts Building at 106 Bayard Street on Brooklyn’s Greenpoint/Williamsburg border. Kalmon Dolgin and Neil Dolgin, co-presidents of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, made the announcement.
Fred Rufrano of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates represented both the tenant and the owner in the deal.
Cirker’s is an industry leader in the storage of fine art and other valuable possessions. With nearly 150 years of fine art industry experience, Cirker’s stores some of the world's most important art. Prominent collectors, galleries, auction houses, private dealers and museums entrust Cirker’s with their valuable assets. The new Brooklyn location and convenient Manhattan West facility exceed all fine art standards, making them a recommended storage choice by insurance companies worldwide.
With a location already established in Manhattan’s Midtown West, Cirker’s will use the space in Brooklyn for expansion. For the past decade, the building at 106 Bayard Street was leased by Winchester Fine Art Services, in a deal also completed by Fred Rufrano, making the facility an ideal location for Cirkers’ expansion.
“We were happy to work with Cirker’s, a prestigious name in the art storage industry, to find a second location for the company in Brooklyn,” said Neil Dolgin of KDA. “As the borough sees more people making the move across the river, Cirker’s will be able to use its space at 106 Bayard Street, as well as its Manhattan shop, to manage the additional requests for art storage and transport.”
The two-story, fully sprinklered property at 106 Bayard Street offers high ceilings ranging from 13-to-18-feet, gas heat, one loading dock and one drive-in dock and 2 lifts between floors. Located between Manhattan Avenue and Leonard Street, the property offers convenient access to Queens and Manhattan via the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. The B48 bus route and L subway line are a few short blocks away.
